Pastel Memories Quilt

I finally finished this quilt on 1st April 2013. I say finally because this quilt was 10 years in the finishing!

My dad brought me back the flannel fabrics from New Orleans over 10 years ago. The colours were never really my choice, so after cutting out some blocks I lost interest in the project and put it away. The project ended up in the loft where it's been for the last 10 years. 

I've been trying to finish off some of my UFO projects this year so decided to get this project out again. Was inspired by the UFO busting tips on Pat Sloan's  blog. Luckily I had the pattern and fabrics all kept together in a plastic sealed bag, so was able to finish it off fairly quickly. The quilt top and back are made from all flannel fabrics so it feels lovely and soft.

Now that it's made I actually quite like the colours, but think I'll give it to my niece.
